LSU No. 9 on Top 20 best helmets in college football

SIAP. Not sure if this belongs on the rant, OT, or if anyone gives a shite .

Yardbarker.com - Top 20 best helmets in college football

quote:

9. LSU

LSU's helmet history is actually a bit comical. There have been four revisions over the years and all of them clash a stark yellow and purple. But somehow, it works. In fact, the collision of the two colors is a bit royal, like that guy who wears the odd wardrobe just because he can.

But in addition to the colors, the school's abbreviation and a fierce tiger are placed prominently on the helmet, giving this lid all-around appeal. We'd wear this in Death Valley any Saturday in the fall.

We're #9 and Bama's faded red ones are #3?





No Florida, no Oregon (who seemingly has a different helmet for every day of the year)

Strange list.

Not jumping your case, just a strange list out of all the teams out there. Even TCU isn't there. Weird.

Yeah, you're right. It's a strange list.

And yes, re: Bama #3

I don't see the attraction of Arizona's either.

I agree with Florida and Oregon being omitted is strange.

Bamas helmet might be the most historic and well known helmet out there. So is pen state. Didn't look at the list, but pretty sure they are high

Weren't the numbers on the sides of the helmets originally put there for TV when they first stared putting games on?

I agree with with the historic tradition, known brand of it, I was just agreeing with birdmans' opinion aesthetically wise.

Oregon is disqualified for trying too hard and having a different helmet for every day of the year

Never been a big fan of Miami's lids, but I love the "classic" CF look, so PSU, Bama,Nebraska etc are all cool with me. Always loved Michigan's helmet too.

I also like Texas and T A&M's helmets. Oregon's shite is butt ugly.

Michigan #1 is right on. But some of the other selections were more about tradition than aesthetics or Penn St and Bama would never had made the list.
